    I need to save images using FileExplorer into SQL database, I created a classDataServer.cs and DBContentProvider.cs, I placed them in the App_Code folder. The class DataServer.cs I changed the name of the table Items in Pictures and name of the column ItemID PictureID. Everything else remained unchanged.

    The Handler created I changed only the ConnectionString.

    After running everything works, but the image is not stored in the database.
    Where we make mistaken?

    Hi Patrik,

    I am not quite sure what may be causing the problem. A possible reason for such problem is the table and field were not changed in all SQL commands. Could you please verify if this is not the case? The DataServer methods responsible for storing an item in the database are : ReplaceItemContent(), CreateItem().

    To be able to provide more to the point answer we will need to examine and debug the content provider locally. Could you please open a formal support ticket and provide a sample project with the custom content provider implemented?

    All the best,

    Columns in the SQL tables have the same names as column names in the linkDataServer.cs class.

    Example of a set of project

    DataServer.cs

    Hi Patrik,

    I tested the provided ContentProvider and DataServer classes and everything is working as expected on my side. In my previous answer I asked for fully runnable project so we can examine the database as well. Could you please verify that the Content field is the correct type - one able to store files (Binary, Varbinary, Image)?

    In addition, you can debug the ReplaceItemContent() / CreateItem() methods to see if the SQL Query is executed correctly - ExecuteNonQuery() should return the number of affected rows, thus when executed the returned value should be 1.

    Hi Rohan,

    The provided information is not enough to determine the exact cause of the issue, could you please describe in more details what do you mean by "I have Multiple level of folder and file structure in database table" ? Could you please open formal support ticket and provide a sample fully runnable project along with sample database reproducing the issue so we can examine and debug it locally?

    Hi Rohan,

    You can modify the names of the folders by modifying the Name parameter of the DirectoryItems returned by the ResolveRootDirectoryAsTree() method of the content provider, e.g.:
    public override DirectoryItem  ResolveRootDirectoryAsTree(string path)
    {
        var orgDir = base.ResolveRootDirectoryAsTree(path);
        orgDir.Name = orgDir.Name + new Random().Next().ToString(); //modify the name of the current folder
      
        //modify the name of the subfolders
        foreach (var dir in orgDir.Directories)
        {
            dir.Name = dir.Name + new Random().Next().ToString();
        }
      
        return orgDir;
    }

    More detailed information on how RadFileExplorer content provider's working is available in the following help article:
    Using custom FileBrowserContentProvider

    Hi Dobromir,

    Thanks for replay ..
    I am able to rename the directory on File Explore . But have one different scenario as - i have two button on File Explorer tool bar one for User Name and other for First name and last name. When user click on UserName Button Treeview show the directory name as UserName and when user click on First name and Last name Treeview show the directory name as First Name and Last name.

    Problem is - When User Click in First Name and Last Name Button it effects only to Rad Grid (Show the first name and Last Name) but it does not effect to tree view  tree view not showing as refreshed data .(may be tree view is not getting refreshing) how can i do this .......

    Hi Rohan,

    To avoid full postback for uploading file, you need to enable the AsyncUpload for RadFileExplorer. Please take a look at the following live demo for more detailed information:
    FileExplorer / AsyncUpload

    All the best,

    Hi Rohan,

    Which version of RadControls for ASP.NET AJAX you are using in your application? If you are using version prior 2011.2.915 there was a bug in RadFileExplorer causing the control to postback after upload. If this is the case, I would recommend you to upgrade your version of RadControls to the latest available (currently 2012.1.411).

    Hi Rohan,

    The provided screenshot is not enough to determine the exact cause of the issue. There are two reasons, that I am aware of, that may be caused the described behavior:
    1. A server-side error thrown during the callback triggered to populate the grid component of the explorer. If you have assigned custom content provider, I would suggest you to run the page in debug more and set a breakpoints in the ResolveRootDirectoryAsTree() and  ResolveDirectory() methods because they are responsible for populating the explorer.
    2. If an additional AJAX request is triggered and interrupt the callback request by the control. This can happen if RadFileExplorer is ajaxified externally. In general this is not recommended practice, because the explorer's functionality is based on client-side callbacks and they do not work well with additional ajaxification. However, if you need to update the control using AJAX you should note that RadFileExplorer should not be trigger for this request.

    If non of the above is the case, could you please provide sample runnable page reproducing the problem so we can examine it further?
